I am super jealous of anyone going to the Coachella music festival in California this year. I would kill to see Fever Ray, Grizzly Bear, Passion Pit, Vampire Weekend, David Guetta, MGMT, Old Crow Medicine Show, and Yann Tierson all in one incredible weekend. Haha, I would love to road trip to a music festival before I die as well.


I love this show called "The Buried Life." I am never a fan of MTV shows because I find them so trivial and mindless, but this show/documentary is awesome. It entails a group of Canadian guys in their early twenties who made a list of 100 things to do before they die, and they go to insane lengths to complete their tasks. They definitely put your life into perspective in terms of what you have done and what decisions you make that will affect your future. My list would have to include:

1. Earn a masters degree
2. Become a professional artist
3. Harvest my own tea
4. Attend a pro European rugby match
5. Design and decorate someone's home
6. Volunteer at an animal shelter
7. Blow glass
8. Own a vintage couture gown
9. Tour the Louvre
10. Run a half-marathon


Check out this awesome Alice and Wonderland-inspired fashion article from Style File blog. These images from the article are absolutely breath-taking:


I am dying for a Burberry trench coat for a graduation present:

Today, I have begun my transition into etching. Degas said that etching improves one's drawing abilities so I'm excited to experiment with this new medium. My professor, Laura Pharis, is perhaps one of the most talented print-makers I've ever seen/heard of/met. I'm not going to lie, I'm slightly intimidated by her amount of talent, though it reassures me that I am in good hands. I'll show you what I mean:

Our first assignment is to sketch a self-portrait. I've been delving through the file cabinet that is my brain to find some sort of image or action that defines me. I feel that my mind is cluttered with my various interests and compulsive actions, such as waving my arms around when I'm excited, so this assignment should be a breeze.

As for my other classes, I am taking three art history courses, another studio course, and the arts management course I've mentioned before that will rendezvous in New York. This is perhaps one of the greatest semesters I've ever endeavored so far. I hope my time in graduate school or the next chapter in my life will be as exciting and full of potential. These studio courses leave me wishing I never gave up creating. I have had one too many difficult art teachers in my youth that led me to believe that I would never be talented enough to pursue art, even as a pastime. One thing I've learned from my recent studio experiences is that I hope that everyone succeeds in the thing he or she love the most because I feel that I have. In the meantime, I'll be updating this thing more often as my classes renew my inspirations.

I think it's about time I updated this thing. I've been in Fort Lauderdale, Florida for the week spending quality time with my mom. I have a busy week approaching with the start of a new semester and everything so I'll try to update as much as I can. Until then, I leave you with one of the funniest commercials I've ever seen:

I am thrilled to take a trip to Carytown in Richmond soon. It has been a few years so I've been dying to visit Pink, American Apparel, Need Supply, Eurotrash, and Bygones. The awesome thing about Bygones is that it was recommended in a book I got for Christmas called The Little Guide to Vintage Shopping by Melody Fortier.

I also love these photos from the Bygones website:
